Michael Winstanley

Michael Winstanley retired as Senior Lecturer in History at Lancaster University in 2010; he remains a life member of the university and Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. His publications range from the sixteenth to early twentieth century but specialize in the regional history of Northwest England, especially Lancashire, and explore subjects as diverse as Lord Burghley’s map of the county; regional connections with the West Indies; and rural, industrial, and commercial history. His current research includes a study of catalogues of early Catholic martyrs.
